Having a clean office is not only important for the health and safety of employees, it also can be a major boon to productivity. When an office is kept clean, the effect on morale and employee perception of the company becomes apparent fairly quickly. Additionally, it allows for equipment to run more efficiently and thereby increases the productivity of normally running processes. If you are a facility manager, you should never forget the importance of maintaining a clean office and take measures to ensure it stays in proper condition.
The effect of cleanliness on morale
Firstly, the human factor of having a clean office should not be overlooked. When employees work in a clean environment, they not only tend to be healthier and happier, which is an important goal in and of itself, but also more productive. There has been shown to be a positive correlation between a clean working environment and employee morale. No one wants to work in an office they feel is unsafe and when people feel safe and clean, they work better, thus leading to better productivity.
Clean machines are effective machines
Additionally, equipment that is kept clean is much more likely to be in proper working order. When machines are kept clean, there is much less of a chance that rust and debris cause processes to slow down and cause issues with the equipment breaking down. Equipment shutdown is a majorly detriment to productivity and keeping the space around it clean will go a long way to reducing this risk. In addition, machines that are kept clean tend to have a longer life span, saving costs down the lines when replacement and repairs are not as frequently necessary.
Office space should always be kept clean and well maintained for the sake of both employees and equipment. If you don’t have the personnel to clean or perform long-term maintenance, it is always a good idea to outsource these services to experts that excel in the field of facility and office maintenance.
